ARCH 3314 Environmental Technology III: Natural & Artificial Lighting, Electrical Systems & Vertical Circulation:
Prerequisite: ARCH 3313
This course offers lecture and pracitum. It further builds on the technology sequence. This course further elaborates the connection between the Building Orientation and the role of natural and artificial lighting with an emphasis on the sustainable mechanisms shaping building form,. Energy conservation and energy code compliance is examined. Selection and configuration and distribution of artificial lighting and natural lighting and vertical circulation [escalators, elevators and other mechanical devices of vertical circulation].fostering sustainable mechanisms in diverse contexts of spatial configurations, building typologies while exploring means to defray life cycle costs.
